Complaint Detail(s)

11/4/2013 Guarantee/Warranty Issues | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: *** ******** sold me a pool liner in 2011, since the sale, I've been unable to get in touch with him or his company, either via phone messages, email or us mail.

Desired Settlement: Complete refund of my money due to lack of honoring product warranty and complete lack of communication, seems like the business may as well no longer exist if it still does.


We performed the work even though it was not under the warranty at no charge. The complaint has been resolved. 

BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved

Additional Notes

Complaint: At your request a letter was sent to you regarding the water bills at the time you drained the pool in
August and September of 2011 for two acid treatments.
Your company's poorly executed work of acid washing and plastering of the pool has resulted in the
pool's new plaster separating from the old plaster. There is peeling, mottling, and excessive cracking.
During the application of the plaster, and the cleanup, there was no protection to the lawn causing the
plaster to damage the grass. The pool is in a state of ongoing deterioration. You have left us with a
horrible mess.
At this time I am requesting a full refund of our money that we paid in good faith, plus our expense for
removing the plaster you poured. We have done everything we could to work with you on th is
extremely poor plaster job.
Harsell lnvoice $3,840
Plaster Removal $3,000
Lawn repair i__lQQ
Total $7,140
If I do not hear from you within one week, I will move forward.

Desired Settlement: see Attached document

BBB Response:

I had sent a Certified letter to Mrs.********,back a month ago,telling her that we would take care of the problem and replaster her pool.I am just waiting for her to reply.

Consumer Response:

The pool can not be replastered. A layer needs to taken off before the pool can be replastered. I have had the pool inspected by several businesses and have stated it was not sealed  properly and that it can not just be replastered. The original cost was $6600, and  I am now going to be out at least $7000. I am willing to accept a compensation so that I can have my pool fixed. 


BBB's Final Determination: Complaint was resolved through BBB Arbitration
